Kīlauea Volcano — Lava from Fissure 20 Enters a Crack

Lava flowing into a crack

Detailed Description

Lava from the eastern channel of the Fissure 20 complex is flowing into a crack in the ground that opened on the morning of May 20, 2018. The crack is "robbing" the easternmost channel of lava and the eastern ocean entry is therefore less vigorous than the western entry point.
